Al Ahly head coach – Pitso Mosimane has said that the Egyptian giants wanted the 2020/21 TotalEnergies CAF Champions League more than Kaizer Chiefs after guiding the Red Devils to lift an enviable 10th continental club trophy on Saturday.
Goals from Mohamed Sherif, Magdy Afsha and Mohamed Elsoulia enabled Al Ahly to beat 10-man Kaizer Chiefs 3-0 in at the Mohammed V Stadium in Casablanca to successfully defend their crown.
Speaking in a post match interview, the three-time winning coach noted that the Egyptian giants were in dire need of the ‘Al Ashra’.
“We really needed this trophy, the team from my country also wanted their first star but we wanted it more than them, the tenth one was important,” the South African coach said.
“It’s good for the history it’s good for our archives and how better to do it than with three goals.
“Yes I understand there was a red card, but it’s part of football, you should not be reckless if you play the cup final, you shouldn’t be too emotional, this happens in football.
“We deserve it, we won it, we’ve been scoring goals all the way [towards the title]. Congratulations to the team, Al Ahly deserve the tenth trophy to make history.”
